Teachers need to save time without sacrificing quality. Students need to become skilled at interacting with digital texts because they use them most frequently in their day to day lives and most standardized tests are digital. Participants will learn several platforms they can utilize for fiction and nonfiction texts, current events, independent reading, and intervention. Questions, images, notes, videos, etc. can be embedded within the texts. Students can annotate, answer questions, and request help privately. Real time data can be viewed for formative assessment purposes. You won’t be disappointed!

Your training information will be emailed you immediately following registration.  That means, you could potentially start TODAY with your self-paced course and still have until April 25th to complete the 6 hours.
